Comments: Ahoy, I\'m a student studying Law and German at Trinity College Dublin who really wants to get involved in yacht racing. However I have found it quite difficult to get my foot in the door. I’m a qualified dinghy instructor and have raced my Laser Radial internationally but ever since last August, when I got the opportunity to sail on a Varianta 44 in the Boddenetappen in north Germany, I’ve realised just how amazing big boat racing is and so am currently in the middle of my RYA Day Skipper training. Here is a list of any relevant yachting experience. -2014: crewed on a Beneteau 36.7 (called Holy Grounder) to/around the Scilly Isles from Cork Harbour -2014: completed my Competent Crew on a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 37 (Yola) -Winters 2015/16: crewed on a Beneteau 27.7 (Jigsaw) in Dublin in the Dun Laoghaire Sunday morning Forstbite sailing- called the \"Turkey Shoot\" & \"Spring Chicken\"! -2017: crewed in the Boddenetappen Regatta on a Varianta44 -2017: completed my first weekend of my Day Skipper on a Beneteau 36.7 (Holy Grounder) -2018: currently looking forward to my first transatlantic crossing aboard the Volvo 70 Green Dragon. I would genuinely appreciate the opportunity to get some more time on the water. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this. Fair Winds! Kindest Regards, Caoimhe
